500 ml bottle, the beer pours a mostly clear dark gold/amber color with about an inch frothy off-white head that sticks around a while. There's also a lot of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like caramel and bready malt, honey, and light earthy hops. Taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but with the addition of a bit of apple and dark fruit. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's smooth and easy to drink with moderate carbonation. I thought this was a good Oktoberfest brew, I'd buy this again in the future. $3.49 a bottle.

Smooth, beautifully blended cereal grains and overtones of near licorice malt. A classic.

Pours a clear golden amber with a billowing head. Head retention is good, and some impressive lacing is left behind in its wake. Aroma is classic marzen: toffee and honey notes, plus some floral hop character.

Lots of caramel malt on the palate, but the sweetness is restrained. There's a bit of toasty grain character, and light hop bitterness picks up toward the finish. There's even some light fruit (apple, pear) notes. Having had my fair share of different Marzens, this has the most tasty and complex flavor profile of the lot.

Sampling right now on 8/25/14. Comes in a pretty 500ml (16.9 oz.) bottle that costs around $4.00. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a .5 L veissber 'vase' glass.

Pours a pretty golden-amber in color with a good 3-finger foamy head that settles down to a good 2mm layer on top of the brew and more on the sides. A decent amount of lacing was seen with each sip that sticks to the side of the glass. Perfect carbonation. The aroma is mostly of sweet caramel malts for the most part. The taste even has more going on with the sweet caramel malt with some bread (yeast) with very mild hop finish with a hint of spice in the mix as well. VERY easy to drink and smooth. Medium bodied. One of the best 'Marzen / Oktoberfest' brews I have tasted as I am usually not a huge fan of this brew style. A exception here for sure! PROSIT!
